Alternative Provision in Gloucestershire: a proposal to bring the Stroud and Cotswold and the Cheltenham and Tewkesbury Alternative Provision Schools together as a single Pupil Referral Unit

Gloucestershire’s Alternative Provision Transformation Project was launched in June 2020 and is part of the Joint High Needs Transformation Programme . As part of this we are seeking to improve the arrangements that are in place for the children and young people in Gloucestershire who have been, or are at risk of being, excluded from school. There are three maintained Pupil Referral Units in Gloucestershire who work with children who find themselves in this situation.

Working in close partnership with the Headteacher and chairs of the Pupil Referral Unit management committees, Gloucestershire County Council has developed a proposal to bring The Cheltenham and Tewkesbury Alternative Provision School (CTAPS) and The Stroud and Cotswold Alternative Provision School (SCAPS) together as a single Pupil Referral Unit governed by a single management committee. The intention is that this will enable them to continue to provide high quality education at the right time and in the right way for this group of vulnerable learners so that they can achieve the best possible outcomes. No changes are planned to The Gloucester and Forest Alternative Provision School (GFAPS) so do not form part of this proposal.
